Fixing Self-Esteem After a Breakup

"I've Lost All Self-Esteem"

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

I will admit I'm fairly pretty and I love my body (as should every woman). I always thought I was a genuine, good person. But recently, my ex broke up with me. It completely screwed up my self-esteem. I just feel so disgusted with myself, mentally and physically. He immediately started hanging out with girls and flirting, meanwhile all I do is lay in bed and work. I feel like he just ruined the meaning and love we had in our relationship. It makes it all seem like a lie, and that I'm not even good enough. It's been four months too. So I don't understand why I'm still so beat up about this. I can't bring myself to even hangout with guys let alone date. The thought sickens me. I'm still in love with him and I'm not one for "fooling around" especially if my heart is pining for someone else. I just have no interest in the opposite sex right now. I'm down in the dumps. How do I fix my damaged self-esteem?

There's lots of important stuff going on in our community. Join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here.
